230 volts udtag på rejsen
Whether car, motorhome or boat – it makes sense to have a 230-volt socket on board your recreational vehicle. After all, enjoying your holiday means being able to use the electrical gadgets you are used to. The problem is they work on 230 volts, while your on-board leisure batteries generate 12 or 24 volts and their capacity is limited. How do you turn 12 or 24 volts direct current into 230 volts alternating current? Quite simply, by using a WAECO inverter. The comprehensive range has been completely revised to suit specific applications. It accounts for all your needs – regardless of whether you “just” want a low-priced, compact unit to run your laptop, or an inverter for your microwave oven or espresso machine. All units feature outstanding quality and a contemporary, user-friendly design.
Inverters in pocket-size format –
mobile power for notebooks and more
PocketPower SI 102/TSI 102
Sales representatives, craftsmen, technical service crews – more and more business travellers depend on their laptops. Mobile computers work on limited battery power. So they are likely to let you down when you need them most. Connected in the line between the laptop and the cigarette lighter, PocketPower smart inverters put you on the safe side. The compact units take power from the 12-volt car battery to ensure hassle-free operation of your mobile computer by keeping its battery fully charged all the time. The inexpensive PocketPower SI 102 generates a sine-wave-like 230-volt alternating voltage, which is perfectly adequate for many applications. The new PocketPower TSI 102 is the best choice to ensure the safe and smooth operation of highly sensitive electrical appliances: its pure sine wave voltage, earthed safety socket and other comfort features place this product in a class of its own.
Inverters with modified sine wave voltage –
230 volts for many commonly used appliances
PerfectPower PP 152/PP 154/PP 402/PP 404/PP 602/PP 604
Completely new outfit, top technology, additional comfort features – the popular WAECO inverter series has changed a lot. The units up to 550 watts are particularly light and compact. They turn 12- or 24-volt battery voltage into a sine-wave-like 230-volt alternating voltage, which is fully adequate for a multitude of applications. The new inverter generation demonstrates great potential. Take installation for instance: adjustable clip-on mounts allow for perfect adaptation to individual needs. For those who are looking for extra comfort and prefer activating their inverter from the dashboard there is an additional outlet for an external switch.
High-performance inverters –
modified sine wave voltage for powerful 230-volt appliances
PerfectPower PP 1002/PP 1004/PP 2002/PP2004
Microwave ovens, toasters and vacuum cleaners are real “power burners”, yet convenient to have on board. Operation is no problem either with a high-performance inverter from the new PerfectPower series described above. The 1000- or 2000-watt models generate a sine-wave-like 230 volt alternating voltage for particularly powerful appliances. User benefits add up to an all-round treat including perfect design, premium quality, and a variety of technical extras for enhanced comfort.
Just take the mains priority circuit designed to switch over to mains power as soon as it is available. Or the soft-start function, which ensures gentle starting even where powerful appliances are concerned. Cable organisers, exhaust air adapter, outputs for remote control and external ON/OFF switch, adjustable mounts, mounting plate – the new PerfectPower high-performance inverters leave nothing to be desired!
Inverter or sine wave inverter?
Which inverter is the right one depends on the type and power rating of the appliance to be connected. The low-priced WAECO PerfectPower inverters generate a modified output voltage – sufficient for all electrical appliances with a wide input voltage range, such as hairdryers and vacuum cleaners.
Sensitive high-tech appliances with special start-up characteristics, e.g. audio/video devices, require a perfectly stable voltage supply. Fluctuations may cause failure or even damage them. WAECO SinePower sine wave inverters make sure that won’t happen. They deliver a pure 230-volt input voltage, just like from a domestic mains supply. Modified or pure sine wave voltage supply is also provided by the small PocketPower smart inverters, designed for mobile operation of notebooks and more. Basically, the most demanding electrical appliance determines the choice of the inverter. A single device on board requiring a pure sine wave voltage is reason enough for you to opt for a sine wave inverter. You should also consider the starting current of the devices. Compressor refrigerators, for instance, can consume up to ten times more than their nominal power consumption.
